Nicky Law, manager of Vanarama National league North club Alfreton Tow, has bolstered his mis-firing squad ahead of the 2015/16 season registration deadline

The vastly experienced Law has brought in young Sheffield United striker Jamie McDonagh to freshen his options up ahead of an impending Easter double header.

The 19-year old Northern Ireland under-19 international has been a regular in Chris Morgan’s under-21 side this season.McDonagh spent time on loan with National League side Chester FC earier this season.

The Reds entertain Gloucester City at the Impact Arena on Saturday before making one of the shortest trips of the season to face Gainsborough Trinity on Easter Monday at The Northolme.

However, with defenders Brad McGowan and Cliff Moyo both still unavailable through injury, right-back Joe Doyle struggling with a hamstring problem, and leading scorer Sam Jones beginning a three-match suspension this Saturday, manager Law need to boost his squad, especially with seven games left.

The Reds boss did begin that process last week when he brought in Sheffield United defender Julian Banton last Friday on loan until the end of the season and the Blades man produced a solid all-round debut despite a 1-0 home defeat by FC United of Manchester last weekend.

Banton began the game in central defence but looked equally at home at right back after being moved there when Joe Doyle limped out of the game with a hamstring strain.
